History: Byzantine Empire

The first two weeks of school we learned about the Byzantine Empire using Layers of Learning, year 2 unit 1.

We added some people and events to our timeline.

We colored a snapshot in time (500 AD) of the Byzantine Empire.

The younger two boys wrote a jounrnal entry about changing names of people and places (Cameron wrote a persuasive essay about having a state church).

We colored a map of Justinian’s Empire in 555 AD.

We learned about The Code of Justinian.

We played a game pitting Heraclius against Khosrau (Heraclius won pretty spectacularly).

We played Hide the Coins.

We compared the Romans and the Byzantines.
